COVID - In line with Public Health England’s guidance, the Synagogue is not currently open and we are not able to arrange any visits until all restrictions have been lifted. However, we can take bookings for next year, offer teachers a range of resources to use in the classroom (see educational resources below) and offer a virtual visit for your class.
Virtual Visit - This provides a unique experience for your pupils to see the Synagogue and learn more about the Jewish faith, without leaving the classroom. Please email email@example.com to make arrangements for a visit via Zoom. Visits to Schools - Would you like to have a visit from one of our volunteer Ambassadors? They have a great deal of knowledge and experience of Judaism to share. Our Ambassadors present information, show the children interesting objects and answer any questions your pupils may have. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch to make arrangements.
